Pig out on Pennsylvania Avenue: Michelle Obama eats everything she says you shouldn’t eat

by editor on July 13, 2011

Michelle Obama went to lunch on Monday. In other words, she went to a fast food joint and ordered a double helping of hypocrisy with some sanctimony on the side.

Flaunting her role as Big Brother’s Big Mother, she sat down at the trough and ate everything she tells the little people not to eat.

The Washington Post explores the excess caloric count:

First lady Michelle Obama ordered a whopper of a meal at the newly opened Washington diner Shake Shack during lunch on Monday.

A Washington Post journalist on the scene confirmed the first lady, who’s made a cause out of child nutrition, ordered a ShackBurger, fries, chocolate shake and a Diet Coke while the street and sidewalk in front of the usually-packed Shake Shack were closed by security during her visit.

According to nutritional information on Shake Shack’s Web site, the meal amounted to 1,700 calories.

Obama, who launched the “Let’s Move” campaign to combat childhood obesity last year, has previously admitted to having an “obsession with french fries,” which she says are fine to indulge in occasionally. “It’s all about moderation,” Obama told reporters.

Moderation. That’s what it’s called when you follow a 1700-calorie meal with a Diet Coke.

Sounds like a troll we all know!

If you’ve ever worked for a boss who reacts before getting the facts and thinking things through, you will love this!

Arcelor-Mittal Steel, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. The new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers.

On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business. He asked the guy, “How much money do you make a week?”

A little surprised, the young man looked at him and said, “I make $400 a week. Why?”

The CEO said, “Wait right here.” He walked back to his office, came back in two minutes, and handed the guy $1,600 in cash and said, “Here’s four weeks’ pay. Now GET OUT and don’t come back.”

Feeling pretty good about himself the CEO looked around the room and asked, “Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here?”

From across the room a voice said, “Pizza delivery guy from Domino’s.

The writer Louis L’Amour had a story along those lines, too.

Seems as a kid he was supposed to dig holes — the work was hard, but boring. Most workers averaged one hole a day. To liven it up, he had a contest with some other guy to see how fast they could dig. He and the other guy were resting after something like their seventh hole apiece when the boss came along, saw them leaning on their shovels, and fired them for slacking. It was really instructive to the people remaining: Work hard, get fired. *Look* busy, keep your job.

It taught me a lot about managing people. First you gotta find out what the hell’s going on if you don’t want to look like a dumbass.

Legend has it, at a construction company I used to work for, the owner just LOVED to fire lazy people. He showed up on a bridge project, saw a couple of laborers lounging around, wrote them their checks, and went on about his business. They made themselves scarce until lunchtime, and hauled their butts to the bank to cash the checks. Seems they worked for a subcontractor.

Sounds like the present POTUS and company. Do and say what you think the people want without thought of anything but being re-elected. To include, do not listen to what the people are saying, because they are not as intelligent as you are, and do not really understand the problem…

I called my stockbroker and asked him what I should be buying.

He said, “If the current administration is in office much longer, canned goods and ammunition are your best bets.”

By the way, how magnanimous of you to accept my apology. Last time I’ll make that mistake!
***********************
Sorry—–I had every intention of acknowledging it (and admitting that I got a bit snippy myself), but was waiting for the post to appear on the board.

I never did see it on the board, but that might have been because I was sidetracked with all the squabbling about Muslim women’s garments today.

Anyway, I should have responded promptly. It was very decent of you to admit your error as you did, and I did appreciate it.

“Wrong again, sugar pie—read it again.”

Oh my little turnip twaddler, of course I’m right and everytime I read it, I see that I’m right again.

“O Asmaa! When a girl reaches the menstrual age, it is not proper that anything should remain exposed except this and this. He pointed to the face and hands.”
***************************
And, again, your logic is skewed, Barb. The above comment implies that it is not improper to leave the face and hand exposed. In no way does it state or imply the inverse— that it IS improper NOT to leave them exposed.

Even if you continue to insist, despite all reason to the contrary, that the sky is pink and 2+2=5, it matters not one tiddler’s drat. It’s your right to cover or uncover your face and hands as you see fit, without being obligated to justify your choice to anyone else. And that’s also true of Muslim women.

I don’t know how you made it through high school (assuming you did) without ever studying logic, but the fact that you don’t get it would certainly explain why you fell prey to the right wing propaganda machine.

Oh Olivia! When a girl reaches menstrual age, it is not proper that her brain should not have progressed at least as far as her body – and is not proper that anything should remain exposed other than your ignorance and stupidity, there IS a difference, ignorance is result of uneducation, stupidity is a natural state of brain processing ability. I point to you.

THANKS for the entertainment of your posts! Are you even a woman? Or just cammo for your guy comments since that is sure what it sound like. I re-read that line several times and yes, it reads the same each time, and has read the same to generations of muslim men and women who have taken it to mean that ONLY the hands and face are proper to remain exposed, and even to some those should not be either, depending on the level of psychopathic control freak the man is. Keep posting, please. We can all take “truth” to be whatever the opposite of what you post is, I think. btw, too many women in western civilization went through too much to gain the rights women in the “west” have today for me to look at covered up islamic woman as anything other than giant steps backward into an abyss.

Something to think about, I know I noticed it recently.
Look at full length pictures of Ms. “O”, during her husbands campaign for POTUS and then compare to recent Pictures. Especially telling when you can find pictures from behind. If the proof is in the pudding, I doubt if Ms.”O” just binges once in awhile…..

I can blame her for her hypocrisy, but I can’t blame her for the restaurants here in D.C..

They are good!

Here is some thing to wet your appetites with?
Reporters here in D.C. in order to keep their contacts secret go to some of the restaurants.

The restaurants are dimly lit, the food is excellent, and no one can see whom you are talking with and the atmosphere is very pleasant “nothing crazy”.

Now for the staffs of both Republican, and Democrat alike they have one that is there favorite above all others, and that one is called BullFeathers.

They will also meet with lobbyists there.
A word of advice though; Bring a strong pair of sunglasses because that restaurant is very close to the “Hill” and YOU WILL KNOW which women are looking for a job promotion.
